Olympus Fe-230 camera has a white screen

I dropped my camera and now the screen is comepletely white. I can press buttons on it and take pictures but I cannot see anything I am doing/taking. I kept turning it off and then back on and then eventually it wouldn't turn on anymore and now I am charging the battery to see if that is the problem. But what do I do about the white screen? Where is the best place to send in my camera to get fixed (I bought it from Best Buy)? Please help! Thanks.

 I know that ask best buy people then they will make your camera ship to olympus. After about 1 month, you will recive mail. It will say you have to pay $73.-- something dollers. And then you have to pay and pick it up! I have the same problem. But i know this because of experiences i already had. So if have any other soultions please contact me at [email protected]

The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product. The cost is $73.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Can I change the color of pictures to black and white? If so, how?


The FE-230 doesn't have a black&white mode. However, just about any photo editing program will give you the capability of converting color pictures to black&white. Doing so on a computer also gives you much more control over things like brightness and color.

My FE-230 is only 2 years old and will not turn on/off properly


This sounds remarkedly like a camera that has been dropped. Even by someone else! The odd noise it the can[mera trying to set the lens up and failing. The black screen is because the lens has not travelled the distance etc. multiple problems !
it needs a complete overhaul and may well be cheaper to ditch it and get a new camera

Problem with my Olympus FE-230


When I turn my camera on, the lens goes in and out a few times. Once it's finally on and I look at the screen, everything is blurry. When I take the picture, it's blurry too. If I try to use the zoom to adjust, the lens starts going in and out all crazy and won't adjust right.

I have an Olympus FE-230 and it suddenly starts taking black and white pictures. I don't know what I did, but how can I get color back?


I have had my Olympus FE-210 for about 2 1/2 years just recently it started to display an all black screen after I took pictures and like many of you I would turn it off and back on just to get 1 picture out. After testing it over and again I may have solved the problem: First: remove all of the pictures and memory card from the camera Second: go into the menu and find the reset button it will then display that the camera will return to default(factory setting) after I did this I was able to take over 35 continuous pictures using every setting and scene setting the camera has If this doesn't work I would suggest buying a new camera Hopes this helps!!

Blurry pictures....


reset the camera and try taking pictures using by soft pressing the shutter instead of a hard press... on digital cameras, hard fast pressing will cause the picture quality to be not as good
